A writing course in literary journalism requiring students to write assignments intended for publication on-line as well as in newspapers, periodicals, and books. These assignments, including profiles, book reviews, personal reportage, and journalistic essays, reflect the genre's focus on journalism of enduring literary value, as distinct from the primarily quotidian value of news reporting. Works by professional literary journalists serve as models. Students critique one another's work and place successful work in the college newspaper. Three lecture hours per week. Not open to students who have received credit for ENG313.
